Radical spiritual revolutionaries,
Today’s blog is really a report on Donna’s and my devotional time for this year.
20/20 is a term connected to vision. 20/20 vision is not necessarily the best vision, meaning just because you can read letters on a static chart while standing or sitting still does not mean you have the best vision.
For instance, 20/10 vision means your sight is twice as sharp as a person with 20/20 vision.
What kind of vision do you have when you are moving?
What kind of vision do you have when what you are seeing is moving?
The Bible says, “Where there is no [prophetic] vision, the people cast off constraint.” Meaning among other things, when we cannot see what is in the spirit realm we typically have no goals to reach, or we give up on our goals.
From April 1, 2019 through December 31, 2019 Donna and I studied at least one chapter of the New Testament every day. We typically would take communion, worship using a song or two that my spirit picked up walking the beach or some other time, and then we would read and dig into the text we were reading that day. This typically would take an hour to an hour and a half.
Several months ago I felt strongly we needed to add more Scripture reading and study to our daily devotional time. We still take communion and worship, but beginning January 1, 2020 we added a reading plan to our 1 chapter minimum from the NT. Now we are investing 2-3 hours a day with the Lord and His Word.
Our plan for 2020 is this:
- Read through the Bible from Genesis to Revelation using the One Year Chronological Bible plan on our Bible App
- Study words, phrases, verses that really stick out to us
- Read and study a Psalm
- We will keep reading 1 Psalm a day throughout 2020
- Read and study a Proverb
- We will read a Proverb corresponding with the day of the month throughout 2020
- Read and study our NT Books [chapters] per where we are as a result of our plan from 2019
- We are currently in 2 Peter 2
“Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.”
As I thought about this verse I realized God’s word provides light for where I am [where my feet are] and where I am going [my path, my divine purpose in life, or the race that is set before me].
I want to challenge each of you to invest in God’s word this year more than you ever have before. Any investment will yield fruitfulness in your life. How much fruit would you produce if you allowed the Holy Spirit to really stretch you to read, study, meditate on, and memorize more of God’s Word in 2020.
2020 – what do you see and how clearly do you see what you see?
